We value contributions from the community and regularly invite feedback on policies, strategies and projects.
The Council has endorsed a Communications and Engagement Policy, Framework and Strategy to make sure we are applying best practice principles, values and processes when communicating and engaging with the Kingborough community.
- The Communications and Engagement Policy aims to make sure all of our communications and engagement activities adhere to the values and objectives as set out within the Policy.
- The Communications and Engagement Framework provides Council officers with the methodology to develop effective communication and engagement strategies. It also seeks to make sure Council improves the evaluation and reporting mechanisms for each project.
- The Corporate Communications and Engagement Strategy is to provide an overview for the communications and engagement activities for the Kingborough Council for a 12 month period.
The Kingborough Community Consultative Forum meets every three months, where representatives from community organisations across Kingborough meet with Council Officers to discuss ideas and provide feedback on a range of projects.
We value the opportunity to gather information about what you want and to make collaborative, consultative decisions. Council now has an online community engagement platform, where all of Council’s online forums, polls and surveys will be published.

Current Engagement Opportunities
Flood Studies Forum
We have recently completed a variety of flood studies on flood prone areas across Kingborough.
These studies and corresponding maps will assist us with development decisions, explore mitigation options and help us improve stormwater infrastructure.
This forum is an opportunity for you to ask questions and provide feedback on the flood studies.

The results of this engagement activity will also be used to develop a policy document, which will guide the assessment of future applications for memorials in our public spaces.
This survey does not apply to the installation of war service memorials, memorials of historic significance, or memorials with recognised heritage value.
